2005 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx LS 4dr Hatchback (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
After months of internet research & weeks of test driving 8 cars., I chose the Malibu Maxx. I love it. What I was looking for in a car was; plenty of leg room, good ride, good fuel economy, nice looks, comfortable interior and most important, price! The Maxx has it all. I was very surprised at its performance! It is very quick! Good mileage too. We just returned from a 800 mile trip and averaged 30.8 mpg. Driving hwy speeds 75-80 mph. Interior space is in a class by itself in the mid size segment. I'm 6'4" and can set with my legs crossed in the rear seats with the front seat set to fit me. I think it has a good looking exterior, kind of euro looking. I'm very pleased with my Malibu Maxx!

Continue to evolve the car. Market the dang thing so more people know it exists,to the younger crowd. Offer more aftermarket parts. Take a lesson from Scion. Catch them while they are young and get them loyal to the brand. This could easily become a must have car to personalize.The Maxx street racer!
